Theo Walcott says the head injury that has sidelined England colleague Wayne Rooney looks like "something out of a horror film". Rooney was left with a sizeable gash on his forehead after being caught in the face by Manchester United team-mate Phil Jones earlier this week. The wound required stitches and forced him to withdraw from England’s squad for the World Cup qualifying double-header against Moldova and Ukraine.
Asked to describe the injury Walcott pointed to a bottle of water beside him and said: "I’ve seen a picture of it and it’s about that big.”
